|[tng1005] PRUS - 4 reasons to be better - Prus|
Why should you be better? Never asked yourself this question? Well, knowing one's own faults and weaknesses is always the most difficult thing... Belarussian artist Vladislav Buben (aka Prus) doesn't give here straight answers but brings sounds that create a proper mood for all those who want to answer the question for themselves. You can't call "4 Reasons To Be Better" a motivating nor a contemplative music, its dense structures and the wealth of used samples make you rather follow trustfully t...

|[tng1006] Spectac - Garvilla - Spectac|
Paul Morrin, a.k.a. Spectac, has been producing odd un-categorisable music since his very first "track" in 1993 entitled: âSpace Rabbitâ. âIn these early days we had no clue of midi etc.â states Morrin, âIt was all guitar pedals, record players, and scrap metalâ, he says. Under their Members of PSR-400 moniker, the rabbit was received extremely well by a surprisingly large public, though The Members had never officially released or promoted it...
|[tng1007] Maciek Szymczuk feat. Joanna - Before Summer - Maciek Szymczuk feat. Joanna|
Couldn't wait for the Summer and thought it might be nice to have a really Summer-like release here on AudioTong right now. Maciek and Joanna's EP seemed to be a perfect one for all those who know this ephemeric intensity of summertime evenings and - just like us - would like to experience them on request. So, here it is... Enjoy the feeling before Summer comes.

|tajne przejscia - nuoh|
Another radical release on AudioTong: nuohâs âTajne Przejsciaâ EP is an example of how Olaf Nowaczykâs idea of âpure soundâ is realized. Or actually was, as these recordings come from 2002. Nowaczyk states that his works are not inspired by Stockhausen or Cage-like gurus, but come from his audiophile fondness for âpure soundâ. In this case âpureâ means âstripped of whole this cosmetic trashâ...

It's our huge pleasure to present here new recordings from American composer Marc McNulty. Three pieces of experimental electro-acoustic, organic and in a way very meditative nature, prepared with self-made software and various sound sources. Starting with a kind of shorter introduction at Elenime, than turning into slowly developing its powers title track and back to the end with Soontaege which is again of quieter nature, the whole material is very involving and powerful...

|tng1048 cldscp - lemmings|
Some time ago we have released Calidoscopio's first album, Plug. We were enchanted by their simple yet beautiful songs and were hoping for more. And now we've got it. The Argentinian duo just finished their new album and we are more than happy to have it online too. Another ten songs, somewhere between melancholic lo-fi pop and weirdly distorted electronica - still surprising and still very good, maybe even better than the first one...

|Trevonic - Dirty Maps - Trever Hagen|
Another "nomadic" release on AudioTong. This time from Trever Hagen, an American currently living in Budapest.

Dirty Maps is a collection of eleven semi-improvised tracks for trumpet and electronics. Trever's education in jazz can be heard on most of them and it only adds more flavour to these pieces...
